Clicking on the green dot in the "Read" column of the menu bar marks the item as being read and then it immediately goes back to being unread. Performing the same task in saved searches on POP accounts works properly. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set up a saved search that includes an IMAP account with unread messages 2. visit the saved search folder 3. mark an unread mail message as being read by clicking on the green read button Actual Results: the message is marked as read for 1 second and then goes back to being unread Expected Results: the message should stay marked as read
